You can disable the UPS status by turning it off in the System Preferences > Energy Saver > UPS settings: Just uncheck "Show UPS status in the menu bar" and you should have only your internal battery being displayed. Update: That check box shows in either the "Power" or "UPS" tab; not just the UPS Tab as described above. It's still in exactly the same ...

Happened to my brother with a brand new original Apple charger. What he did was to remove the charging extension (thicker cable) and plugged the square power box directly into the sliding plug, and it worked. See below: This worked for him, but might not work for you, let us know! :)

Dont have the rep to comment, trying to answer anyhow. You need to make sure you have the correct wattage on your magsafe adapter. A 15 inch computer requires a 85w magsafe adapter. If you use a 60w adapter it will run the computer but not charge it. It will however run and charge a MacBook Air that only requires a 60w or 45w adapter. I guess you already ...

You can easily do it with Automator workflow and AppleScript: Open Automator When it asks you what to create, choose "Application" Then from the Utillities folder on the left, drag the "AppleScript" one into the workflow, and instead of the line saying "You script goes here", type: tell application "System Preferences" reveal pane id "com.apple....

Most of people are using 3 or 4 g with public connection (wifi) on.This will never work .This might create issues , a slow connection , beside this, when they can not be switched manually , the battery is twice weaker or more.

12 minutes in 4 days - but keep in mind other apps may pull up a Safari view, and iOS may be counting that depending on the method the apps use to do it. Twitter and Mail are two likely culprits there.

That's not total battery used, it's the percentage of battery used out of all battery used for the last 4 days. So you started out with 100% battery on monday and on friday you had 80% left. If safari is listed as 74%, then that means about 15% of the 20% was used by safari.

No. You don't do any damage to a power adapter by leaving it in. The fact of the matter is that power adapters die for one reason or another. Personally, I have power adapters for products that have been in use for well over 15 years, being plugged in all day, every day. I also have power adapters that barely last a year. For the most part, my devices ...

When the phone is in this state (extremely weak battery), it doesn't respond immediately even if it is charging. If it's charging, it'll take several minutes to have enough charge to even display that it's charging. So plug it in and be patient. Most likely, that's all you need to do in this case. (Using a known good charger and cable is also a good ...

It appears that you didn't fix the original problem which was why your MBP wasn't turning on in the first place - your battery wasn't charging so you had a dead battery. You have already verified that... the battery is good (it's new) the charger is good as it works on another Mac the logic board is good because when the battery has juice, it works. ...

Considering according to Apple the low power setting affects "Background app refresh Automatic downloads Wi-Fi associations" By reducing or disabling these features, Then yes it will be affected, your WhatsApp won't update its content unless you have it open as the app you're using. FaceTime should still remain as good though on cellular networks but if ...

To quote directly from Apple about their own products and batteries: "Store it half-charged when you store it long term. If you want to store your device long term, two key factors will affect the overall health of your battery: the environmental temperature and the percentage of charge on the battery when it’s powered down for storage. Therefore, we ...

You are overthinking this as there is nothing special about the lithium battery that requires special storage considerations. Just store it like you normally would; I put mine on a bookshelf to hide it from the inevitable human curiosity of the dog walker/plant waterer when I go on extended trips. Your lithium ion battery is going to lose capacity whether ...

Doesn't matter what % charge you leave it at. You won't lose too much charging capacity any way you do it. Just be sure to fully shut it down and store it in a cool (not cold) dark place.

Without jailbreaking, this is not possible as Apple does not provide a feature for this, and apps can't control the system in this manner. If the device is jailbroken, you can use an Activator action to Power Down on Disconnect.

You have essentially eliminated software as a cause by restoring the OS. If it happens consistently around the same percentage remaining, you likely have bad cells in the battery. Batteries cannot be repaired, so you must either have it replaced at an Apple Store or authorized repair center, or consider ordering parts and tools and doing it yourself if you ...

I had the same issue before. Most likely your iPhone's battery isn't calibrated correctly. Try to calibrate it. If the problem persists, then you have a bad battery, it's time to visit the Apple Store.

The same happened to me after disconnecting my MacBook Pro Retina (late 2013) and then exhausting the battery on a Netflix marathon. I left my MacBook unplugged for several days and then it began charging again.

Sometimes. See http://android.stackexchange.com/questions/78285/are-apple-android-specific-usb-charging-ports-really-different. The standard USB (1.0 and 2.0, anyway) spec only allows for 500mA. There are multiple incompatible protocols for drawing more. Apple's work differently than others.

This is an unlikely case, but this is what happened to me. If the voltage/power of what the charger is plugged into is not sufficient enough to charge your computer, the light will be green and/or 'Not Charging' will be displayed in the menu bar. This happened to me on the plane. I use a pretty powerful laptop.

The first thing I would do is an SMC Reset. According to Apple, one of the reasons to reset your SMC is... To do a reset Shut down the Mac. Plug in the MagSafe or USB-C power adapter to a power source and to your Mac. Using the built-in keyboard, press Shift Control Option on the left side of the keyboard, then press the power button at the same time. ...
